what racquet r u using now and what don't u like about it? if its something simple like, "my balls go long all the time," it might just be a technique problem.

i use a dunlop evo 3 i'ts too light for me and i don't have the good control on my backhand,

Try the Dunlop m-fil 300.

Well, you could start with clanging pots and pans together and then move to a drum set. :mrgreen:

As for a racquet... I'd suggest putting the specs you want into the TW racquet finder and posting a list, then different members can tell you what they think you would be good using. My advice, demo, demo, demo, and then demo some more. You'll eventually find your "holy grail" for your current game.

i would also recommend that you demo rackets. the mfil300, LM/FP radical, rdx500 mp, rds001 mp, babolat pure drive, wilson npro open, wilson ntour 2, and prince 03 red might all be worth a try

get the mp tour-1 from www.direct*sports*-shop.co.uk but without *

Mfil 300 is one great stick. I just switched from my 03 Tour MP and like the feel of the Mfil 300. Pure Drive and 03 Red/White are also good choices to consider.

I'll thinking to get one of them;

Npro Open
RDS 003
M-Fill 300 mp
Pure Storm

demo a pure control. I just bought one and love it.

maybe even a babolat aeropro drive or dnx 8 or even a dnx 9 and 03 tour mid or midplus

demo different rackets that vary in weight swingweight and stiffness and keep an open mind about it and maybe even throw in an xtended lenth racket to see how you like it.

hope you find a racket that you like
